    As a relatively new traveler, the thought of flying alone internationally was just another obstacle I had to overcome to live in Limerick, Ireland for four months, first with a weekend detour in Dublin. Family and friends asked if I was nervous, which I was, … More »

  • Departing Dublin

    Posted by Intern on November 3, 2013.

    Dublin, Ireland, has now officially joined the list of cities around the world that I have absolutely loved. Granted, this list includes every city that I have been to, but nonetheless, these past 30 hours or so in the Irish big city has shown me that all cities aren't quite the same, but can … More »

  • Imagination Becomes a Reality

    Posted by Intern on October 23, 2013.

    For many years now, I have wanted to come to the United Kingdom and Ireland, the British Isles. I never really knew why nor did I have a real reason why, but there was something about this region that drew my attention unlike any other place in the world. It has class, elegance, grandeur, … More »

  • A new adventure

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 16, 2013.

    A few months ago, I never thought I would leave Virginia. I was at the Women’s basketball NCAA Final Four for a conference and a head coach asked me “Could you work in California?” I replied immediately “No,” but she told me about the limits I would set myself to if I didn’t venture out. … More »

  • St. Patrick’s Day 2011

    Posted by Andy Steves on March 23, 2011.

    Our St. Patrick's extravaganza kicked off on Wednesday evening at the Porterhouse, Dublin's best microbrewery. In this spot, you won't find any Harp, Guinness or Smithwicks. In stead you'll find their own brews that bring home award after award from the brewer's championship competition. … More »

Happy Backpackers

I definitely have WSA to thank for my exceptional experience in Amsterdam. One would think 4 days isn't enough to tour a city but WSA facilitated an optimum weekend full of sightseeing and fun. Amsterdam may have a notorious reputation for its lax drug and sex culture but there‚Äôs so much more to the city. Luckily, our tour guide, Arthur, native to the Netherlands, steered us away from the tourist traps and showed us around his beloved city, highlighting all of its gems. I'd definitely like to try other WSA trips in the future. It's hassle free traveling with an awesome itinerary - nice that the tour guides are flexible with the schedule and willing to cater the itinerary to the group's interest! Highly recommend WSA to any student with only a weekend to see a city.
